OK, so ranting is a bit like pissing upwind at the slope

What can I say? I'm a designer with a modelmaking background. I don't manufacture anything. But, when I sell a design, there are legal elements which should be honored. And often are not. And often, cost more to fight than any compensation that may come from a running legal battle. So...

1. You don't cost-cut without notification. Was in the contract.
2. You don't redo the plans and substitute your name for someone elses. Thats not only illegal, its wrong.
3. I just wanted to piss upwind

Hope this answers your question. I don't mean to sound crass, I appreciate your concerns and you are right; when you sell a design, you are giving up certain future rights. But it really depends on the contract and nature of the design. Sometimes, you take the money and walk away. Other times, you have some long-term contractual obligation to maintain said design or future iterations.
